As the oldest plant show in Belgium, carefully selected master growers and collectors from home and abroad are exhibiting an unprecedented variety of special, new and rare garden plants. Each is a specialist in their own domain. Plant Day at Arboretum Kalmthout is an event not to be missed for every flower and plant enthusiast.
